Dlamini admits huge Majoro blow


AmaZulu coach Ayanda Dlamini is disappointed to lose Lehlohonolo Majoro but is comforted by his side's good run of form at home.

Usuthu played to a 1-1 draw with Cape Town City on Saturday night after creating several chances but being unable to capitalise, allowing the Citizens to get an equaliser.

Dlamini said after the game it is good to be unbeaten at home but would have preferred to get maximum points.

"Yeah it's good but it's even better when you collect maximum points at home," he said.

"It's understandable, we had to play the last 20 minutes with ten men so it was a good point for us.

"We have to keep our home record. The fact that we haven't lost at home is good and positive for the players' mentality.

"Every time teams come here we have to make sure we dominate and get maximum points."

Usuthu have lost one of their on-form players for two games in Majoro, who received a red card, and Dlamini expressed his disappointment.

"Yeah it's bad to lose Major, he is in top form and has been performing for us, getting the goals, and losing him at this stage is very bad," he admitted.

"But we've got players and they have to do the job while he is not around, but yeah it's bad to lose him."
